    I find myself remembering a futuristic movie where whenever you opened your medicine cabinet, you were asked if you were alright by the gov’t.
    If we fail to elect people who understand the value of privacy and how it relates to security, there’s a very scary future coming.
    Respectfully,

    A hobby of mine is tracking new technology. The merging of electronics, biology and computers will make the next several decades very interesting. Personal privacy will continue to diminish simply because the new tech will make it very easy and oh so reasonable, to give up more privacy for all the “right” reasons.

    @Respectful Troll: I offer these examples of interesting new tech… Implantable RFID chips, Implants and wearable skin patches that monitor body functions, Motorola’s new skin patch Tattoo/Bluetooth interface, prototype battery implants that use body fluids to power implant devices. I expect implanted computer/WiFi devices in the next ten years. When everyone is “connected” there will be no privacy.

    Interesting that Orwell had “models” like J. Edgar Hoover to choose from for the “invasion of privacy”, but the technology today is all that’s really “new”.

    Nope, not with obama as POTUS is there any proof, Adrian
    .
    In my opinion, it wouldn’t matter what POTUS we had in office. Also my opinion, GWB (or his rogue veep, actually) advanced this emerging technology without much thought or care about privacy.
    .
    Regardless, this ’toon is another version of the same meme of “Santa” knowing everything. I hope the editorial cartoonists come up with a different approach, ’cause this is getting old.

    Another way to fight terrorism is for all nations to retreat back to their borders and mind their own business.

    On a side note… Hobbit 2 was great in 3D Imax…
